Housing and Dining

Residence Life and Housing Operations

University housing is available for full-time and part-time students on a space-available basis, with priority given to full-time students. Nine residence halls are provided: Clement Hall, Skyview Hall, Dubuis Hall, St. Joseph Hall, Agnese-Sosa Hall, Hillside Hall, Joeris Hall, McCombs Hall, and Watson Lofts. In addition, the Village of Avoca Apartments provide four-person suites. All halls are air-conditioned and equipped with lounges, laundry facilities, and TV rooms. A room may be reserved by completing the online housing agreement and application, and $225.00 housing deposit.

All residence hall students will be required to purchase a meal plan each semester. Room assignments are made based upon application and deposit dates without regard to race, creed, or national origin. Although most students have roommates, some single rooms are also available.

Professionally trained staff and graduate and undergraduate student Resident Assistants supervise and oversee the residence halls. The university issues Guidelines for Community Living in the Residence Halls, a publication which provides students with information and policies regarding the residence halls.
